1 bed apartment to rent in DH1


Thornley House is a unit of private apartments located within the beautiful grounds of Sherburn Hospital.

Located in the small hamlet of Sherburn House, the complex offers the benefits of country living while only a five minute drive away from Durham City Centre.

The apartments are accessible via a secure door with video intercom system, which leads into a communal hallway. There is off street parking available around the complex and immediate access to the gardens in the main courtyard. Thornley House also has it's own common room.

This 1-bed lower apartment has recently been refurbished with new carpets, boiler, kitchen unit and shower room.

Built in medieval times, Sherburn Hospital is, in itself, a grand estate of Gothic style buildings surrounded by stunning gardens and country bridle paths. The views of the countryside are spectacular from all angles and even has a chapel located within the grounds.

Service charges for general maintenance and gardening are included in the rent.

For further information, please call 0191 383 2133.

Next Steps: If having viewed one of our rental properties you are interested in taking it, please contact our office. We will then send all potential tenants our 'Terms and Conditions for Tenancy Applications' to sign. Holding Fees are calculated on a sliding scale: Rent of £100 - £199pcm = £20 Holding Fee, Rent of £200 - £299pcm = £45 Holding Fee, Rent of £300 - £399pcm = £65 Holding Fee, Rent of £400 - £499pcm = £90 Holding Fee, Rent of £500 - £599pcm = £115 Holding Fee, Rent of £600 - £699pcm = £135 Holding Fee, Rent of £700 - £799pcm = £160 Holding Fee, Rent of £800 - £899pcm = £180 Holding Fee, Rent of £900 - £999pcm = £200 Holding Fee, Rent of over £1000pcm = £230 Holding Fee. The holding fee is NON REFUNDABLE in the eventuality that you withdraw from the process, fail the right to rent checks, provide false or misleading information, or fail to provide requested information within 15 days of the holding deposit being paid. The holding fee will go towards the move-in monies (rent) on successful applications. We will provide you with our referencing criteria when you apply for a property or upon request. Before moving into the property you would need to pay the first month's rent and tenancy deposit (normally a month’s rent + £25). EG If the rent was £500pcm then the deposit would be £525. Alternatively, instead of paying a deposit you can purchase a ‘Reposit’; a deposit replacement product that allows tenants to pay a non-refundable fee equal to one week’s worth of rent (inc VAT). There is a £30 annual renewal charge if you stay in the property beyond the first 12 months. You remain liable for the full cost of any breach of your tenancy agreement, but benefit from not paying the lump sum deposit upfront. You must pass referencing to be eligible for this product. T&C apply. A higher rent may be required where the landlord agrees to the tenant having a pet. Not all landlords will consider pets so this should be confirmed with us prior to viewing. As a general rule blocks of flats will not allow pets under the terms of the lease. All negotiations and payments are subject to contract. Please note that we require identification and proof of address from anyone over the age of 18 who will be occupying the property. This should be a passport with a utility bill dated within the last 3 months (a full list of acceptable ID is listed on the government website under 'Right To Rent'). It should also be noted that rental properties are dealt with on a first come, first served basis so be quick to avoid disappointment! We have client money protection (RICS) and are members of the Property Redress Scheme (PRS).
